Highland Council announced today:
The Council regrets that there will therefore be no ferry service between Cromarty and Nigg this year.
The Council had a contract for a half-hourly ferry service between Cromarty and Nigg on seven days per week from June to September. The Cromarty Ferry Company indicated some weeks ago that they were unable to find suitable berthing for the vessel and might have to withdraw from the contract. Having been unable to find a solution, they gave notice on 6 May to terminate their contract.
A notice will be put on the Council’s website and we are arranging for road signs to the ferry to be covered.
Tenders will be invited for a reinstatement of the ferry from 2016.
